WWFD and Webster Police react to Dawn Nguyen verdict

It was more than a year ago, but the Christmas Eve Tragedy is still fresh on the minds of so many. Especially those who were at the scene along with the two firefighters killed and two others injured.

New10NBC spoke with a couple of West Webster firefighters about that verdict. They say they're relieved and that it's been a long and painful 16 months for all of them. They really want the community to know - their healing process is far from over.

West Webster Firefighter Tom Link responded to the 2012 Christmas Eve fire call that turned out to be an ambush.  

"It's kind of a bitter sweet ending to a tragic event," says Link.

Link says he's pleased with the guilty verdict in the trial of Dawn Nguyen, but says there are no winners in this case.

Greece woman found guilty in connection with West Webster tragedy

There was a guilty verdict Tuesday for the woman who bought the guns that were used to kill two firefighters and injure two others in the line of duty. It was a tragedy that began with a reported car fire and ended with three lives lost.

A jury found Dawn Nguyen guilty on a charge of falsifying business records. The jury's decision meant that they felt Nguyen filled out the paperwork to buy the guns used in the West Webster tragedy and intended to give them to the suspected gunman, William Spengler. Police say William Spengler set a fire outside his home on Lake Road in Webster and then used the guns to fire at four West Webster firefighters who responded to calls for that fire. Two firefighters, veteran Mike Chiapperini and 19-year-old Tomasz Kaczowka, were killed. Ted Scardino and Joseph Hofstetter survived the attack. Spengler's sister, Cheryl Spengler, was also killed.

New York State Exposed: The cost of driving in NY

Every day, most of us have to get in a car and drive somewhere, whether it's to work, school or the grocery store. The cost of driving can add up, from gas prices to Thruway tolls to registration costs.

Matt Cleckner is a husband and father of three children. He loves to drive. 

Matt Cleckner said, “It's the feel of driving, being out on the road, you got your music going, you're in the zone.”

But when it comes to his kids driving, he’s not just talking about safety. 

Cleckner said, “Honestly, I’m frightened. I know that insurance is going to be expensive.”

How does New York compare to other states when it comes to insurance rates? According to Insure.com, New York’s average car insurance rates rank among the bottom ten in the country. The bad news is other fees and high gas prices.

Prosecution rests in trial of Greece woman linked to West Webster tragedy

It has been a long, tough few days for the loved one of the West Webster firefighters killed in the Christmas Even ambush.

All week long prosecutors have made their case that the woman accused of buying the guns used to shoot those firefighters bought them knowing the suspect was a felon.

Friday, the prosecution rested its case in the trial of Dawn Nguyen. Now the case is in the hands of the defense.

The defense isn’t required to call any witnesses but in court today, defense attorneys say they have three people on stand-by.

From the beginning and through today, prosecutors have been trying to prove to the jury Dawn Nguyen bought the guns for William Spengler and knew he was a felon.
